adoral ad·o·ral (ād-ôr'əl)
At, near or toward the mouth.
The adoral zone runs into this pocket and the mouth is located in its lower right-hand corner.
To the right of this adoral zone is a single line of preoral cilia.
The adoral zone and peristome agree with the details given in the family characteristics.
The adoral zone is well developed upon the left edge of the peristome, from which it passes around anteriorly to the right edge.
The adoral zone is fairly well developed, but not distinctly marked off from the remaining ventral surface.
The region surrounded by the adoral zone is frequently drawn out into an anterior process, occasionally bearing a pigment mass.
In front the peristome bends sharply to the right and extends as far as the right end of the adoral zone.
The adoral zone extends to the posterior third of the body, the mouth and œsophagus are directed anteriorly.
The left edge also appears to cover over the adoral zone slightly.
